Future of Television

One hundred fifteen million households in the U.S. have a television set in them. Cable television is the #! way to watch TV in America. Cable television channels and videotapes give the audience member access to specialized programs and material, far beyond what is available on the three commercial television networks and public television.
Television has changed a lot over the years–from black-and-white tube sets to Technicolor consoles to plasma and LED high-definition TVs.
But the medium is still evolving. Tech companies are producing bigger (yet thinner) TV screens and immersive, customizable viewing experiences with Internet connectivity, widgets, and apps; and broadcasters are looking at ways to move beyond high-definition.
Ultimately, I’m convinced we will get to what I call RD3D media, which is retinal definition, three-dimensional media where it’s almost indistinguishable from just looking out a window, for example. I think when we get the pixel density about eight times where it is today in high definition, and when we solve some of these lingering issues with 3D television without glasses, and we think that’s certainly workable at that pixel density over the next 10 years, so we want to be on those platforms too.
